Books that cover Second Quantization?

  1. Apr 15, 2008 #1
    So I actually decided to make an effort to study for my quantum final ahead of time, and I'm trying to find books that cover second quantization. If possible I'd like to find a book that gives a decent explanation (with examples, maybe?) of the Bogoliubov transformation. Does anyone have any recommendations?

    That is some quantum final you have there.

    It sounds a bit like you want a condensed matter textbook. Perhaps "Many particle physics" by Mahan.

    Heh, well it is second semester graduate quantum. Anyway, thanks for the suggestion.
